David found peace and comfort through the trials and challenges of life in the songs that he would sing to the Lord. Singing sooths the troubled soul. It is a medicine for the heavy heart. It reaches places of emotion and feelings that simple words will not touch. When we sing songs of faith and praise, or listen to spiritual songs to the Lord, we also can find peace, tranquility and healing that touches our inner-most being. We are transformed, lifted and raised by the comfort that comes from above. In this lesson we also uncover some background of the authors who wrote some of our most beloved hymns.
